Champions League: Bayern Munich v Manchester City match preview

A look ahead to tonight's Champions League fixture at the Allianz Arena

Manchester City will be looking to finish their Champions League group campaign strongly tonight when they take on Bayern Munich in Germany.

Both teams are already through to the last 16 of the competition and Bayern will top the group with a win or a draw. The German side could even afford to lose and still secure first place so long as it was by a single-goal margin or a two-goal defeat.

City have enjoyed their best ever Champions League campaign so far with four wins and one defeat, their only loss being at the hands of Bayern Munich back in November.

Pep Guardiola's team are currently enjoying a 40 game unbeaten streak in the Bundesliga, with their last loss occurring back in October 2012. They have also won every Champions League group match this season, beating fellow Group D teams with a goal difference of 13 in five games.
